Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again hit cinemas in the United Kingdom on Monday, and is set for release in the States on Friday.

At the Premier to Mamma Mia Here We Go Again Pierce Brosnan, who plays a past love interest of Meryl Streep's character Donna, told Sky News he wasn't bothered by bad reviews.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again follows Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) trying to run her mother Donna's (Meryl) villa in Greece whilst pregnant, as she finds out more about her past.

The new Mamma Mia! movie has been described by critics as both "consistently funny" and the "cinematic equivalent of a B-side".

It will be Cher's first full album since 2013's Closer to the Truth, which spawned singles "Woman's World" and "I Hope You Find It".

In TV interview, Trump says queen called Brexit 'complex'
Speaking to Piers, Donald revealed he too agreed with the Queen , saying: "She's right, it's a very complex problem". When pressed by Morgan , Trump claimed he does know the difference, but his original quote renders that dubious.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is released in United Kingdom cinemas on July 20. Speaking to People, she said, "I was thrilled to death, and it was so silly".

"It's not what you think of when you think ABBA, because I did it in a different way", she explained.

As well as the usual ABBA classics, Cher performs Fernando with Andy Garcia, and lends her voice to an ensemble rendition of Super Trouper towards the end of the film.

It was announced earlier this year that all four members of ABBA - Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad - have reunited to record two new songs.

"So we did. And it was like time had stood still and we had only been away on a short holiday". Check out 18 more exciting albums due out this year here.
